Softly, Dear has a very ‘Wisconsin’ sound. Portico is the debut effort from this Eau Claire-based band, who formed late summer 2012. After brewing for a while, it’s ready to breathe. Softly, Dear is made up of Tyler Hart, Josh Frederick, Alex Adkinson, Ben Possi and Addie Strei.
Mine All Mine is proud to release this limited-run cassette version of the previously-self-released EP, including a bonus Phobos remix of one of our personal favorites, Melange. Grab the cassette today.
Original album photography & design by Brenna Signe. Tape design by John Praw. Music & lyrics by Softly, Dear.
Special thanks to Evan Middlesworth, Karle Paske, Mike Malone, Ilse Renner, Hamm’s, our families and friends, the musicians and artists of Eau CLaire, and those who support them.
